House Mouse Challenge

Well - where did my week go!
It started off OK and I made this card for a young person who goes to the Youth Club that my DH works who is having an op on her leg. I followed Scoopy's sketch for the House Mouse challenge and made the image girly as this young lady 'loves pink girly things' the papers are from a Laura Ashley pack.

Then my Daughter came home mid week as she was going to a friends wedding on Saturday ....so ... need I say more! It was lovely to have her home and she didn't go back till last night which meant she was here for Mothers Day and my Son came for lunch, so a lovely day!

Its back to normal now - the house always seems so quiet when she has gone, but I can now have some me time!!

I have had a quick browse and found I can enter this card in:
House Mouse challenge - sketch
By the Cute & Girly - Cute & Girly
Cute card Thursday - Couples (Well - there are a couple of animals on this card)
CES - Cards featuring or for Children
Colour Create - Pastels

Well that's it for now - I'm off to blogland to find out what I have been missing!

Thanks for looking
